    100Chihuahuas Improving!

    Hello, I am 99Chihuahuas and I want to improve my art!

    I feel very inspired and am working hard to improve all aspects of my drawings. My ultimate goal is to create a graphic novel (which I am writing right now!), but I need a lot of practice before I will be happy and confident in my own 2D art!

    I created a tool for other artists if inspiration is needed! Check it out if you please at www.ArtPrompts.org, feedback is always welcome.

    I am looking forward to improving as much as possible!

    *NOTE* I don't update quite as often as most of the people here, but when I do, I try to cram a lot of content into each image

    sketchdump

    These are from earlier in my current sketchbook, they are doodles that might be from a few years ago! Putting them up here so I can compare back to them

    Hi and welcome!
    I hope that you keep us updated and don't '' give up '' on your sketchbook like so many before you ^^.
    Post some newer stuff! . Some crits on your older stuff tho, have you checked out Loomis head structure? Id definetly recommend giving it a look and do some measurements, the eyes on your heads are often a tad too high. The eyebrows are at the level of the top end of the ear. And the nose ends about at the end of the lower part of the ear.
    I find that the loomis method has helped me A LOT.

    Good luck! Hope to see more .

    Edit: Btw, I like your idea with your website . I'll probably end up using it! Thanks!

    Thanks, Mrkolsyrad!

    I don't think I will be giving up anytime soon! At least I will really kick myself and try not to, I am striving for a professional-level quality to my art, even if I prefer a more comic-y style.
    I think I tend to be a little slow on updates because I like to compile a ton of sketches together, instead of doing many small updates ;P

    Thanks for pointing towards the Loomis head structure, I googled it and saved out some images! Proportions are a bugger ;P

    Glad you like my site! Its my little pet project right now, just started it up last month!

    Tehee! No more older images now

    This took me a while! These were done looking at photo reference. Now I plan on doing some in-depth studies of the hand, then another 50 hands to see if I have improved more
    The hands get better as you go lower down the image. I got a little better as I learned.

    Look at those sexy hands. Keep them coming. For simple line drawings they have some very neat details. I like the work you put in them, and they have 2 values. x) Neat!

    "50 hands challenge" timelapse video!

    Thanks for the compliments SS!

    Do people ever do screencasts or timelapses of their work on the forums? I decided to record me doing my self-appointed "50 hands challenge" and speed it up and make a little video. It was fun and I like the improvement I see by the end as I get more comfortable with hands. I'll embed the YouTube video below. For those people who may not enjoy embedded videos, here is the link:
    http://youtu.be/QYo-B8POoLY



    I still feel like I have a ways to go when it comes to hands. I purchased a lovely book called "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" by Stephen Rogers Peck, and also Loomis' "Head and Hands", book I will now use to do some really in-depth studies. Maybe then I will take another crack at 50 more hands.

    Wow so much hard work drawing hands. Maybe I will try doing a ton of studies on a page one day. Nice video, was fun to watch
    Keep it up with those studies!

    Comic page done quickly and with no ref = DISASTER

    This is page 3 of a collaborative comic I was asked to draw. It is an improv story with only a basic storyline to follow at the beginning, so whoever does a page can move the story along in whatever way they please.

    I did this with NO reference and I did it very quickly. I think that, because of that, it is hideous. Someday, when I can draw amazingly with no reference (which is my goal), I will look back on this someday and laugh, instead of feeling embarrassed.

    Also, I suck at coloring/perspective/environments. I am looking forward to actually knowing what the hell I am doing.

    another try at no reference

    A comic page for a friend's story. I did it with no ref as another test for myself, so I can compare with future no-ref stuff.

    Another Pokemon - Charmander! Charmander was especially hard to translate into 3D.

    Awesome work here man, I really liked seeing the first comic book page and then the next update another one, a long time later but the quality improved an insane amount. You must have been drawing a lot in that period, so why not share that on here? Your current work looks really good. Small critique on the last drawing, the big wolf's right leg (left for viewer) should not reach that far, it starts at the other side of his body but it's right next to his other foot. I hope you update more frequently!
